My 15 year old Hayward 2hp 220v froze up on my and after tearing it apart, there was a ton of rust on the motor shaft. Time to spend more money!!! Yay!!!
Can anyone make some recommendations on this please? I think that a newer pump would be more efficient than the old one so maybe I don't need 2hp? I have 5 jets that are powered by this pump (to add to the 6 jets the main pump handles). I suppose that I should stick with 220v but what are the downsides of going say a 110v 1.5hp? Brand name (Pentair, Hayward, etc) is not a real issue here since it won't be running everyday, I'd just like the best bang for the buck! Thanks!
